Although the media have often reported that the Wikimedia Foundation has offices outside of the US (in particular, in India), this is incorrect; although they have hired contractors based in other countries, they have not formally set up offices in any other country than the US. In 2011 Jimbo Wales announced plans to open an office in India in the 10th anniversary video, but this plan has not been executed nor is it active.
